Original Correspondence. MR. EDITOR, [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 12 March 1830

Original Correspondence* MR. EDITOR, ,.. j Lamentable indeed-most affticting to the mind, and highly prejudicial to the best interest!» of our adopted land, are the «bominable and bnnelul effect» of drunkenness. , It is a sub- ject which I think would more properly suit, and does more J often prove, the foundation of tragedy, than an essay on the I bibacious habits and corrupt manners ' of a commuai ty »o . thirsty. No sins, however enormous, are so obstinate in their re- covery us those in which men ate fond of glorying; and the most reflecting man will be astonished how drunkenness should be of this number. The confessions of the most exulted vo- taries in the annals of its notorious fame bear testimony to the miseries it .has entailed upoo the human race. Drunkenness has no claim to profit, and I am sure far less in affording any happiness to him who drinks destruction like water, to pledge the good health of others, " while he robs himself of his own." Equally vain are the sophi...

Mr. Gurney's Steam Carriage. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 12 March 1830

Mr. Gurney's Steasn Carriage« It is calculated that a bushel of coke will be sufficient to supply Mr. Gurney's steam carriage for two miles, and that a gallon of water will be consumed in a minute. A fresh sup- ply of water will be required every eight or ten miles, and every twenty or thirty miles coke. From a comparative statement of the relative expenses, if reckoning the apparatus and wear equal to four horses, the engineer and stoker cor- responding to the coachman and guard, the expenses will be reduced to the smallest compass of travelling. Four horses are estimated at 2s. per mile ; while the coke required would notexceed 3d. ; so that the differences of expenses would be   as 3d. to 2s. Probably a more important result would arise whenever the time shall arrive for the general employment of this mode of travelling. Upon a moderate computation, in the British dominions, a million of horses are appropriated to this purpose : as each horse consumes that produce fr...

Luxuries of a Russian Winter. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 19 March 1830

I luxuries of a Russian Winter. ' ' lu Kussia, it is by no means an uncommon circumstance (o ' hear two people accost each other in''the fallowing dialogue, by way of salutation :-" I beg leave to acquaint you thal your nose is freezing ;" 'to which the -other probably answers, . " I was just going to observe to you that yours is already frozen." On such occasions both the sufferers stop, and re- ciprocally perform on each other the operation of rubbing the, afflicted part with a piece of stuff, or sometimes with a hand ! ful of snow, in order to restore the circulation of the blood. After this service mutually rendered, the parties separate with the usual ceremonial of bows and salutations. Upon one occasion, an Italian arrived at St. Petersbugh for the first time in the month of December. Ile had scarcely stir- red a short distance from home, when his nose hi came com- pletely frozen. A good-natured peasant peiceiving his mis ïiap, took up a haudlul of snow, and, without waiting f...

Orginality of the English Language. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 19 March 1830

Originality of the English Language.

Haman, it is no less cer tain, obtained his as follows :-when he was tucked up upon that   gibbet, which he had caused to be erected for another, the passers by, beholding his exaltation, were astonished at the change in his affairs, and very naturally exclaimed, "Ha!   man! are you there?"-David, by slaying the mighty Goliath, filed the enemie's army with a panic, which occasioned them   to make a division ; he was from this event styled Divide, now corruptly written and pronounced David.-Alexander's   name appears plainly to be of English origined, for, at the time   he lay; sick at Babylon, his physicians replied to those who &a...
